“Best pasta in Argentina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I are traveling in Argentina and Chile for 2 months and these was the best pasta so far we ate on the Argentinian side.
Absolutely to recommend.

“Finally, great pasta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

This place was right across the street from our hotel and we passed it by a few times, thinking it was really for take-out. Our loss. When we finally went in on our last day, we found out what everyone was raving about. It's nothing fancy--you go to the counter and pick out your pasta and they take it to the kitchen to cook and then add the sauce of your choosing-bolognese, 4 cheese, basil pesto, bechamel, etc. We had gnocchi with pesto and tagliatelle with bolognese. These are big portions, so you may want to share. We also had a salad with tomatoes and arugula. The salads are prepared ahead but very fresh. While we were eating, at least 30 people came in to buy pasta, empanadas and/or sauce. Most items are sold by weight and at very reasonable prices. We took home a yummy Spanish tortilla for our breakfast. Don't miss out on this place, we'd be going back today if we weren't leaving!

“DIVINE”

One of the most delicious homemade pasta (with pesto) I've had in South America and good prices too! Go there if you have the chance.

“Don't judge a book by it's cover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

I walked by this place the first day I was in Iguazu and thought "tourist trap"...NOT SO! We went back for lunch the next day (thanks to some convincing TA reviews) and it was one of the best pasta dishes that I've ever had. All of the pastas are hand made that day. You choose a pasta and a sauce and they cook it up for you. Simple, delicious, and inexpensive. Go here if you get a chance!

Don't let the shop look fool you. This place produces excellent Italian food. Food arrived promptly and tasted amazing. Staff were polite and obliging. Make sure you stop by here.
